American Idol shock

Sorry to bash you Kris Allen fans, but shouldn't Adam win. Of course Kris was kinda cute, but Adam had the rocker style and black nailpolish that was kinda weird to do for guy. Shocking, I thought Adam was going to win, but Kris won. Might as well go with the present. Who thinks Adam should have won?

Re: American Idol shock

i didnt watch this season religously like some of my other friends.  but from what i saw, adam was definaltey the most versiatile [is that a word?] singer of the season. i thought he was going to win, but maybe when danny got kicked off, kris got all of danny's fans votes because he was more like danny than adam is?? idk thats just my thinking. or maybe also, because he is suposidly gay, some people didnt vote for him? if that is the case, that is really sad..

 

but even tho he didnt win, he sang with KISS!!! that must have been soooo cool!!! plus, every knows him now, so he is definalty getting a few record deals in the near future!

Re: American Idol shock

I was so happy!!!!! I hate American Idol, but Adam losing was the highlight of my day! You don't ruin a masterpiece of song (Born to Be Wild) and the rock gods will let you off freely!

I'm so happy Kris won! Don't get me wrong, Adam is good. But I adore Kris.

Re: American Idol shock

AAAAHH!  I was SO mad Adam lost!  He by far has the better voice.  No offense to Kris fans.  It's just that Adam has a way better range and can sing any kind of music!  I don't support the gay thing, but his voice is beyond amazing!

Re: American Idol shock

I am SO MAD Adam lost ! He was my favorite. But the way I see it, Adam is going to be famous no matter what. I still don't get why he didn't win because Adam was waaaaay better vocally than any other artist on american idol.
The persons of their world lived in an atmosphere of faint implications and pale delicacies, and the fact that he and she understood each other without a word seemed to the young man to bring them nearer than any explanation would have done.

Re: American Idol shock

did you guys check this out? they're saying Kris won only because he is cuter and Adam lost because he's unusual and more talented! what the heck is going on!
